St. James Catholic School
St. James is a Catholic elementary school located in the Mission District of San Francisco.
It is administered by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose in association with their lay partners.
This school serves children of families of varied cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Empowered by Jesus and his teachings, we accept the responsibility to help develop the gifts and talents of students, parents, and staff alike.
We challenge our students to recognize the importance of their role as future world leaders in light of the Gospel mandate to serve one another in love.
As leaders of our faith community, the faculty strives to instill in our students a strong sense of Catholic/Christian values, moral responsibility, appropriate decision making skills and sense of self worth.
We hope to empower students to reach their full potential by our efforts to develop the whole child, thus enabling the students to continually grow as positive, contributing members of the Church and society.
